Atmosphere was not great as we are seated in a small corner table in the back room even though there were other tables available in the main dining room.

Overall the experience was good but not great. The food was excellent but service was slow and we waited a long time for our food when the restaurant wasn't that busy.

The service and food were really wonderful. I particularly loved the duck, the doughnuts, and the cherry crumble. But the cocktails—THOSE were exceptional. Best cocktails my husband and I had ever had!

We started our Valentine's Day at the Dhalia Lounge for dinner. Every dish we had was an amazing amalgamation of flavor. The special for the evening was rack of lamb that was expertly prepared and the presentation was superb. The service was nothing short of extraordinary. We will definitely be returning soon!

I considered canceling our reservation due to the on set of the snow, but glad we decided to stick it out. The food was excellent and the service didn’t waver due to any anticipation of being short staffed.

Lovely spot downtown! Original Tom Douglas restaurant with locally sourced whole foods and cozy atmosphere. The service was outstanding (20% tip included in check as part of keeping staff well paid). I ordered the crab cakes which were delicious and came recommended. My date ordered the 8 oz skirt steak and was equally delicious. Loved our experience and would highly recommend

Food was very tasty, though not as good as their sister restaurant (Lola). I was hoping that their cappuccino was larger and better for the price. Also, while the food was very tasty, I was hoping for a bit more of a cozy experience and larger brunch menu.

Came here for a post-race brunch. Got seats at the bar right away. Yummy mimosa, okay coffee, fantastic orange French toast with brûlée’d bananas and the most generous, perfect side of bacon a girl could ask for. I will go back just for that. Note that 20% tip is built in; two of us for breakfast, one mimosa each, was $90. No wonder we don’t do brunch very often anymore.

The crab cakes were delicious, although quite small and only two. It was served with a very small amount of sauce spread on the bottom of the plate, but it was no trouble to ask for more. It was quite an expensive dish. The duck was truly excellent. OK, it had fat, but that’s was made it so moist and delicious. Creme brûlée for desert was perfect.

As always, the food was terrific, but service was hurried. Glasses were whisked away with a sip left, plates were taken away when side dishes were still full, so we had to scrounge a fork. Disappointing.

Regarding the food... I had the cod. It was overcooked and dry. The grain served with it was soggy.
We split a scallop appetizer. It is hard to imagine serving a smaller portion.
All in all, neither of us was impressed, I am sorry to say.
Regarding the service... We showed up a bit early and were seated very quickly. Service was there when we needed it, and everyone was very nice.

Solo dining is not my favorite thing, but the Dahlia Lounge made it a pleasure. I was given a lovely quiet booth with which to enjoy a 1920's Manhattan, a warming bowl of cauliflower soup and delicious Dungeness crabcakes. The service was attentive and considerate, the room woody and beautiful.

Food was good but way more expensive. Tipping is a mandatory 20%. Our waiter was good but he didn't really manage our dining. He took our order and then basically disappeared until it was time to solicit for desserts. Food servers brought entrees while we still hadn't finished appetizers. Very awkward as they expected us to clear our plates to accommodate their placing our entrees on the table. I always expect the waiter to manage the dining experience and it didn't appear that this restaurant is set up for that. And one of my top peeves ... servers started clearing plates before everyone at table was finished. I just found the service to be shoddy and not worthy of an automatic 20%.

It has been some time since I've dined at the Dahlia Lounge and selected this restaurant as it is walkable to the Moore Theater. My niece and I shared a lovely bottle of French Rose while we enjoyed a lovely meal with great service. Starting with the Alaskan Scallops prepared with pears, arugula and sun choke chips, then splitting the prime rib and substituted the mashed potatoes for the new boiled potatoes. Absolutely fantastic, yet the gem of the night was the desert. Kumquats, lovely sauce with a meringue topped with slices of grapefruit - light as air and perfectly balanced.

We are vegetarian, and my frustration is the menu changes that vary the number of potential choices for us. When I made the reservation, I checked the on- line menu and there were lots of vegetable side dishes, appetizers and two entrees for us to choose from. When we arrived, we still had two entrees, but other choices had markedly dwindled. We have eaten there in the past and had much fun trying a variety of things among us- this time, we all had to order the same thing because that was all that worked for us. Being aware of this problem, a restaurateur can try to make side dishes and appetizers veg friendly by structuring the dish in a way that the meat can be left out and still enjoyed.

Dahlia is our go to restaurant for special occasions. It was our daughters 12th birthday and we made a reservation in advance on Open Table and requested a booth and mentioned that we were celebrating a birthday. When we arrived at our reservation time, we were told by the hostess that they did not save a booth for us because they had so many walk-in customers and they didn't want to say no to their requests. We were in shock that they would prioritize customers that walked in over those that made reservations! There was one booth left but we were told that it was reserved for Tom Douglas' friends. Funny, that they didn't give that booth to another customer.
Anyway, we decided to wait for a booth and were seated after 15 mins. We had a fantastic waiter and the service was perfect which almost made up for the horrible hostess. The food was very good and the donuts with the spreads were a hit as always, especially with a candle in them for my daughters birthday.
Overall, despite the booth situation, it was wonderful meal and evening.

Very nice ambience, service and food. The service was great, should probably order more appetizers than normal if you are sharing (small), entrees were good but maybe not their best night, the Tom Douglas standby desserts were great (made to order donuts and triple coconut cream pie)......overall a good experience.
